RG: I suggest contacting Don Fisher at RMLI - there is LIRR ephemera and documents
on file in the Library section at Riverhead.
The problem right now is that RMLI is closed until further notice for the regular
Tuesday and Saturday work sessions for members such as myself.
RMLI is now scheduled to open for the 2020 season on Memorial Day Weekend
(May 23-25) to the public depending on how the current virus situation pans out.
BR32: The RMLI Library has on file the manuals for the Garrett (4001-4004)
and General Electric (4005-4008) Turbine MU Car fleet.
They may have the Fairbanks-Morse manuals for the C Liners in the collection as well...
Contacting the LIRR to see what is available at Hillside may be a good idea - but remember that the C Liners have been retired since 1963 - 57 years ago - and that
retirement occurred during the "Goodfellow" years when many historical pictures and documents were discarded.
The difference with the middle 1970s Turbo equipment is dating from the MTA years
under New York State ownership. Contacting RMLI will be much easier than filing a
FOIL to MTA (bureaucracy) to see what the LIRR *MAY* currently have...MACTRAXX
